The mc.targetlist object simplifies creating the messages used to target specific instances within MC wrapper objects. The object maps the index of an inlet where a message was received to a voice index used in the resulting message.
A symbol argument, if present, sets a message to use inmessage output. For example, if the argument is , the resulting message output for voice index 1 and an int with a value of 10 would be .
voice index [int]
You can specify one or more voice index values to be associated with each inlet. For example, if the arguments are 5 6 7 8, four inlets are created and the left inlet is associated with voice index 5, the next inlet with 6, and so on. If no numbers are supplied as arguments, two inlets are created. The left inlet is associated with voice index 1 and the right inlet with voice index 2.
inlet count [int]
To specify a number of inlets without having to type in a voice index for each one, precede an inlet count value with. and the inlet count must be the last typed-in arguments.
listmode [int] (default: 0)
When enabled, the listmode attribute produces individual for each element in the list, as if you had sent each list element separately to successive inlets. For example, with listmode disabled, a list received in the left inlet of an mc.targetlist object with four inlets would produce the message . With listmode enabled, the mc.targetlist object would produce four separate messages: , , , and .
Common Box Attributes
Sets the text that will be displayed in the Clue window when the user moves the mouse over the object.
background [int] (default: 0)
Adds or removes the object from the patcher's background layer.adds the object to the background layer, removes it. Objects in the background layer are shown behind all objects in the default foreground layer.
color [4 floats]
Sets the color for the object box outline.
Sets the type style used by the object. The options are:
0 = 'regular'
1 = 'bold'
2 = 'italic'
3 = 'bold italic'
Sets the object's font.
Sets the object's font size (in points).
hidden [int] (default: 0)
Toggles whether an object is hidden when the patcher is locked.
Sets the text that will be displayed in as a pop-up hint when the user moves the mouse over the object in a locked patcher.
ignoreclick [int] (default: 0)
Toggles whether an object ignores mouse clicks in a locked patcher.
patching_rect [4 floats] (default: 0. 0. 100. 0.)
Sets the position and size of the object in the patcher window.
position [2 floats]
Sets the object's x and y position in both patching and presentation modes (if the object belongs to its patcher's presentation), leaving its size unchanged.
presentation [int] (default: 0)
Sets whether an object belongs to the patcher's presentation.
presentation_rect [4 floats] (default: 0. 0. 0. 0.)
Sets the x and y position and width and height of the object in the patcher's presentation, leaving its patching position unchanged.
rect [4 floats]
Sets the x and y position and width and height of the object in both patching and presentation modes (if the object belongs to its patcher's presentation).
size [2 floats]
Sets the object's width and height in both patching and presentation modes (if the object belongs to its patcher's presentation), leaving its position unchanged.
Sets the color for the object's text in RGBA format.
Sets the justification for the object's text.
0 = 'left'
1 = 'center'
2 = 'right'
